The 4 Best Ways You Can Market Your Business In 2020

As 2020 begins so does the marketing cycle. For many business owners it can be confusing to know where to start. What should you spend your budget on? How do you get the best value for money? Should you spend big on printed material, or social media, on networking or referrals? These are some top tips:

Print marketing is still one of the most cost-effective and versatile ways you can market your business. Think beyond postcards and flyers. Today’s print marketing includes your message printed on anything from tshirts, caps, mugs, pens to billboards and more. It includes adverts in magazines and newspapers. It includes advertising on the side of a car or a bus. If you can think of it then it can be printed. Print is one of the most personal and powerful marketing methods and it’s here to stay.

Another marketing method that’s greatly underutilised is social media marketing. A grey area for some business owners who worry their message won’t get taken seriously, or they think it gives staff an excuse to “waste time online”. But this is far from the case because whether we like it or not, we all use social media to find out about events, products and activities. We like and comment, share and tweet. With a little effort, posts can go viral, and end up across the world in seconds.

If you have the courage, face-to-face networking is an excellent way to promote your business. When you stand up in the room with the opportunity to say who you are, what you do, how you can help and who you’re looking to meet, the world opens up much wider than the 10, 20 or 100 people in the room. With a “face behind the product” other networkers can easily understand what your company does and recommend you to their colleagues and connections.

This leads into the fourth of the best ways you can market your business in 2020 which is through using genuine referrals from people who know you and your company. If you have succeeded with your print marketing, social media and networking, then the recommendations and referrals will come. Remember, giving a referral is just as important as receiving a referral. Everyone wants to feel valued. With a little planning you can introduce incentives to encourage people to talk about your company and refer business to you.

These are four valuable ways you can market your business in 2020. It’s important to keep your message positive and visible using a variety of different marketing methods. For more information on how to market your business, visit

Make It Easy To Schedule Your Social Media With “A Post A Day”

This is a new service I’m offering to help small business owners keep on top of their social media. Instead of posting messages on an ad-hoc basis, I can help to write and schedule your posts on a daily, weekly or fortnightly basis. It’s never been easier to take a hands-free approach to staying in your customer’s and prospective customer’s mind.

It's easy to stop social media overload
It’s easy to stop social media overload

How “A Post A Day” Works

It’s easy to get started with “A Post A Day”. With a simple phone call, I’ll ask questions about what you want to achieve with your posts, whether they are to inform, to educate or to entertain. We’ll chat about which social media platform will work best for you, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, or multiple platforms. I want to be sure you get the most out of your posts so the phone call to research your aims and objectives is vital.

Why You Need “A Post A Day”

In social media today it’s increasingly difficult to stand out. By continuously posting new and original content the search engines will notice the steady stream of posts and award a higher status to your pages. Many small business owners simply don’t have the resources to dedicate the time and effort for doing all their marketing and social media in-house. If this is you, please get in touch and I will be happy to help.

How to Get Started

We’re all busy people so I’ve made it as easy as possible to get started with “A Post A Day”. You can get started today if you wish. I will run through the following steps and set up the scheduling to begin as soon as you’re ready.

  1. Phone call to discuss which social media platform(s) will be the most suitable for your posts.
  2. Choose the frequency, e.g. every day, weekdays only, weekly or fortnightly.
  3. Decide if you wish your posts to be informative, educational, entertaining or a mixture of these.
  4. Choose whether to add stock photography (or your own photos) to the posts, or use text only.
  5. With these ingredients, the content will be created, and the schedule set up for you.

That’s it. As soon as we’ve chatted, working with my team, I’ll create the content and show you for your approval. Then your posts will be scheduled to go online at the time intervals you have chosen.

Everything is posted using your own social media accounts giving you full transparency and control over the posts. By posting on a regular basis you’re giving yourself and your business the best chance of being seen by your potential audience.

In 2019 there were 3.48 billion people online and realistically it would be impossible to put your message in front of everyone. This is where the targeted posts make the most of your marketing budget. Using “A Post A Day” will take the stress out of your social media.

If you’re going round in circles wondering what to write or whether people will see what you’ve posted, please give me a call on 07756 772950 or visit and let’s get started.

Do You Want The “Salon Fresh” Effect From Your Home Shampoo and Conditioner?

Going to the hairdresser is a monthly treat for many men and women. It’s the best opportunity to put aside any work commitments and home duties for a while. The feeling of being cared for and pampered while you relax in a comfy chair away from the hustle and bustle of life is something to look forward to.

Going to the hairdresser is a monthly treat
Going to the hairdresser is a monthly treat

As well as catching up on the latest gossip, chatting about homelife and holidays, it’s a place of real calm where time stops and you’re the centre of attention for a while. Having a new haircut, restyle, colour, trim, shave or simply a wash and blow-dry, there are lots of choices.

Afterwards, when the mirror shows your new cut and colour from the front, side and back, you feel a million dollars, having split ends cut away or new layers, the small to the big changes have a huge positive effect on your mindset and wellbeing.

There’s the smell of the luxury shampoo and conditioner, the prolonged head massage, the cup of tea or coffee, the whole experience is second to none.

But it isn’t always possible to find time to do this every time you wash your hair and that’s where the Arbonne range of True Hair products exceeds all expectations. You can choose from the replenishing mask, daily shampoo, daily conditioner and the leave-in treatment, or use a combination of all four amazing products. You have the freedom to choose when and where you wash your hair without booking an appointment. At home, at the gym, at a friend’s house, there’s no restriction and Arbonne’s products can be used every day.

I’m an Arbonne Independent Consultant of several years and I am able to answer any questions about using these products. I can also help recommend which one would be best for you or for a friend if you’re planning a surprise gift.

This mask contains boosting botanicals including pea protein, sustainably sourced baobab and ashwagandha root. You’ll feel the difference in your hair health and love the shine from root to tip.

You’ll find your hair softer, smoother, more luminous, silky and healthy. Using Arbonne’s natural ingredients your hair becomes stronger with less breakage. It’s also suitable for daily use on all hair types, including colour treated.

True Hair Daily Conditioner

True Hair Daily Leave-In Treatment

Used in conjunction with the mask, shampoo, conditioner or on its own, you can lock in healthy looking shiny hair between washes (or salon visits). Anti-frizz and Arbonne’s restorative treatment help to protect your hair throughout the day.

Arbonne’s 40 years of experience in the health, skincare and nutrition industry backed by solid scientific research and a dedication to cruelty-free products makes the best use of natural ingredients from sustainable sources. The products are good for you and good for the environment too.

Is the Arbonne 30 Day Challenge for You?

We’re nearly a quarter of the way through 2020 already. The year is flying past and it feels a long way since the cold, dark months in January. The days are getting lighter and there’s the hint of Spring in the air.

This made me think back to my January New Year Resolutions and I wondered how many of my friends have stuck to the goals they set. Resolutions to stop smoking, lose weight, eat healthy food, to exercise more, to travel more, everyone chose something different.

What's included in the Arbonne 30days Challenge?
What’s included in the Arbonne 30days Challenge?

It was easy in January with the new year momentum propelling changes in both personal life and at work. But how many resolutions have slipped by the wayside. It is likely many cigarettes have been smoked, extra pounds have been gained and gym membership cards are gathering dust in wallets and purses. The signs of our failed resolutions exist in many ways. But it doesn’t have to be like this.

I’m a firm believer of looking after myself from the inside to the outside. I’m more conscious than ever about the food I choose and making sure I take regular exercise. It helps because I’ve got an energetic dog who loves to walk in the park. She keeps me motivated, even when it’s raining. We go out every day and I always feel better for it.

Another way I look after myself is using the “30 Days to Healthy Living Program” from Arbonne. For those of you who know me well, you’ll know I’m an Arbonne Independent Consultant, an ambassador for Arbonne products. I truly believe these products work and cannot recommend them highly enough.

The 30 Days to Healthy Living Program is surprisingly easy, simple to follow and achieves great results by building new habits to improve life-long health.

You’ll Gain:

  • More Energy
  • More Vitality
  • More Engaged in Life
  • More Happiness

Using the 30 Days to Healthy Living Program, you’re embarking on a health journey that will rest your liver and kidneys to maximise their function. You’re not on your own. The program includes the tools and knowledge to increase awareness of food types and how they interact with your body and work with or against your lifestyle.

It’s a gentle program scientifically engineered to bring out the best in your body, to give you more energy, focus, motivation and zest for life.

If you’re feeling heavy, anxious, irritable or tired, this program can help. If your joints ache, your movement is limited and it’s hard to focus during the day, the 30 Days program can help.

I’ve seen first-hand how this program literally transforms lives. Lethargy becomes vitality. Anxiety turns to confidence and uncertainty and fog turns to focus and clarity.

The best part of the 30 Days to Healthy Living Program is how easy it is to implement alongside your current lifestyle. If you would like to find out more, please give me a call on 07756 772950.

What’s The Perfect Gift To Treat Your Mum On Mother’s Day?

This year, Mother’s Day is celebrated on Sunday the 22nd of March in the UK. With origins in religion and service, it’s the one day of the year set aside to especially appreciate our mothers and mother figures. Whether you choose to celebrate the day with your biological mother, stepmother, guardian or an influential woman in your life, the 22nd of March 2020 is the date to put in your diary.

MotherDay Cuddles
MotherDay Cuddles

In the olden days, daughters working as domestic servants were given the day off to visit their mothers and families. It was the one day of the year they could return home with the specific purpose of spending cherished time with their mothers, catching up on family news, sharing a special meal and spending precious time together.

With family usually living close by, daughters would pick flowers on their way home to give as a present to their mother. The soft fragrant scent of freshly picked countryside flowers would fill the home during her visit and for many days afterwards. Flowers, often roses, were the traditional gift to bring home to her family and this tradition is carried on by many women today.

The modern trend of living further afield with families often spread over different towns, counties and even in different countries means giving fresh flowers isn’t as practical as it once was. This is where modern technology can give video calls almost as realistic as being in the same room together. It’s where using modern transport can ship thoughtful gifts direct to your mother’s door.

Speaking of gifts, we’re all looking for something as special as the freshly picked flowers of the olden days to give to our mothers. While this isn’t as practical as it was, we can still send flowers of a different kind for her to enjoy on the day and for many days afterwards.

I’m talking about the Limited Edition Rescue & Renew Garden of Roses Gift Set, a delicious duo of a rose hibiscus scented Detox All Over Mist with rose water perfect for a refreshing spritz at any time of the day or night, and a rich, rose scented Body Butter designed to hydrate and make your skin feel like its enveloped in a blanket of roses.

This relaxing gift set is exclusively designed by Arbonne for celebrating Mother’s Day 2020. It’s a unique gift your Mum can use at home or at work. It’s also a limited-edition gift set so she won’t have tried this before. It carries all of Arbonne’s quality marks, cruelty-free, gluten-free and vegan.

As an Arbonne Independent Consultant and ambassador for the products, I can thoroughly recommend trying this new gift set. Beautifully packaged and containing top-quality products made with fair trade principles, these fragrant treats are sure to be a treat for your Mum.

For pricing and delivery options, please comment here, ask me at a 4Networking meeting, or give me a call on 07756 772950. Let’s make this a special Mother’s Day to remember.

While We’re In Lockdown, Do You Need Professional Hair Care At Home?

We’ve been in lockdown for a few weeks now and I’m seeing posts on my Facebook newsfeed with friends talking about how they miss going to the hairdresser. Lots of people want to get their roots done. Others just want a trim. With social distancing, if you want to get a cut and blow dry, or try out a new style, the chances are you’ll need to do it at home.

Look after your hair during LockDown
Look after your hair during LockDown

But, before you reach for the kitchen scissors, I’d just like to say it’s easier than you might think to care for your hair and keep it in the best condition ready for cutting and restyling. With your hair in tip-top condition, it will be easier to take hold of sections to cut, the cuts will be smoother, and you’ll reduce splitting and damage.

The secret starts with your hair washing regime, using a quality shampoo and revitalising conditioner to add hydration and shine to your locks. There’s no excuse not to cleanse, moisturise and protect your hair, especially if you use heated curlers or hair straighteners. Less is more when it comes to using products on your hair. A coin sized amount of shampoo and conditioner is plenty for short to shoulder length hair.

If you’re keen to trim your mane yourself, make sure you have great lighting and a mirror to see the results. Cutting slightly damp hair will give you a straighter line, but don’t forget your hair will bounce back slightly shorter when dry. Small and frequent cuts are more forgiving if you make a mistake. You can always take more off if you wish but if you chop too much it could take a few weeks or months to regrow.

I can thoroughly recommend the Arbonne True Hair range of daily shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment to help keep your hair looking silky smooth and manageable during the lockdown. Arbonne’s hair care products are certified vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free.

On the technical side, all of Arbonne’s hair products are paraben free, silicon free and sulphate free and have been developed using the latest research in scientific and ingredient technology. These truly are world-class products, protecting your hair from damage, using botanicals and cutting-edge science. From root to tip, you can nourish your hair with essential moisture, giving your hair that luminous, healthy shine.

While we’re in lockdown it’s important to get up, dress up and show up, especially as we’re engaging more and more in online get togethers. Even if your virtual meeting is with friends and family, they’ll want to know you’re taking care of yourself. With high quality webcams and phone cameras it’s easy to spot anyone who’s looking under the weather.

For business meetings, being smartly groomed with washed and brushed hair, a dash of make-up, jewellery and accessories is the key to creating that vital first impression. Just like in-person meetings, the effort you make when on camera pays off in real business results. If you’re feeling good about yourself everything else just falls into place.

To find out more, please give me a call on 07756 772950. I can arrange for your Arbonne True Hair order to arrive at a home or work address, or to be posted to a destination of your choice.

5 Great Alternatives to Chocolate Easter Eggs

Post Easter we are still thinking about chocolate, although with the UK under coronavirus lockdown you may not feel as though there’s a worldwide celebration and national holiday approaching. With the lockdown measures preventing all but essential travel this year there will be a noticeable absence of public gatherings paying respects to the religious significance and customs associated with Easter.

There will be no Easter Sunday get-togethers with friends and family visiting from far afield. Some shops have even been encouraged to stop stocking our favourite Easter treat, the chocolate Easter egg. This year things are very different than ever before.

So, how can we show our family and friends we are thinking of them?

Cheester Egg
Cheester Egg

Even if we can’t be together in person this year, we can still send thoughtful tokens through the post to our loved ones. These are five of my favourite alternatives to chocolate Easter eggs and I hope you find an idea or two you can use to celebrate Easter with your family and friends too.

  1. Cheester Eggs

As the name suggests, these delicious eggs are made from solid cheese shaped like an egg and wrapped in a presentation box. Is this the perfect gift for your friend who prefers a savoury choice rather than a sweet treat?

  1. Easter Flowers

Surely guaranteed to brighten someone’s day, Easter flowers are packaged carefully and delivered by post, arriving with fresh scents and vibrant colours. At this time of year, daffodils and tulips are popular, along with the traditional Easter Lily, the symbol of hope.

  1. Sponsoring Easter Bunnies

Sadly, there will always be animals in need of our help and Easter is a great opportunity to set up a sponsorship to protect an individual animal or endangered species. I support the Guide Dogs for the invaluable work they do for the visually impaired but there are many choices from snow leopards, to penguins, to horses, dogs, cats and of course bunny rabbits.

  1. Easter Perfume and Pampering Gifts

For men and women, the idea of sending perfume, aftershave or a bath-time pampering set as an alternative to a chocolate Easter egg is becoming increasingly popular. Perhaps with the abundance of all year round chocolate, receiving a non-edible gift is as thoughtful as it is memorable. For great pampering ideas please contact me and I’ll help you find the perfect Easter gift.

  1. No-Added-Sugar Easter Eggs

If you can’t imagine an Easter without a chocolate egg, then choosing a no-added-sugar egg is a great choice for a dairy-free, gluten-free healthier alternative. Made with ingredients such as cocoa butter, cacao mass, soya flour and xylitol, these delicious eggs have the appearance of a traditional Easter egg, without the extra calories.

If you like these ideas, please feel free to share them with your family and friends. Easter is a time to celebrate family and friendships even if we can’t celebrate in person this year. It’s celebrating remembering what we have given up to be where we are today and to taking the time to appreciate the things in life which truly matter.

For more Easter ideas please contact me on 07756 772950 and I’ll be happy to help choose the perfect Easter treat for your friends and family whether they live with you or whether the gift needs to be posted.

Staying Safe With “No Touch” Deliveries From Arbonne

After the Easter holidays and with Covid-19 ever present, it’s even more important to be aware of our physical boundaries, giving space between each other to reduce the spread of infection. We’re being recommended to allow at least two metres distance between people from different households, not to meet in groups and to stay indoors. So, it’s inevitable that our online shopping has soared as we seek to buy things to keep us nourished, occupied and entertained.

Recent statistics suggest that we’ve been buying more than usual for this time of the year. Some sales figures suggest our online shopping in March and April will be comparable with our usual Christmas spending amounts. While this is great news for online retailers and food distributors, it can present problems on our doorstep.

Proud to be an Arbonne Independent consultant
Proud to be an Arbonne Independent consultant

We’re used to greeting delivery men and women, to reaching out to accept our parcels in our hands. For many deliveries we’re using the stylus attached to the cord to squiggle our name. The same stylus someone else used to accept the parcel before ours and same stylus someone else will use after us. This shared object, the one we all use, can be a bearer of germs and potentially a risk for the vulnerable. Not to mention the overall risks to the delivery person being in close range with so many people in different parts of the country all in one day.

The good news is that many companies have relaxed their rules about signed for deliveries. Protecting both the delivery person and the recipient, parcels are being left on doorsteps, in greenhouses, garages, garden sheds and with neighbours. Arbonne is one of the companies advocating the no-touch delivery method and working hard to protect all customers.

It’s times like these when I’m proud to be an Arbonne Independent Consultant. I know that every order my customers place will be treated with the utmost care and attention. I trust that every parcel will reach the person who has ordered it, whether for themselves or for a friend or family member. I am especially glad to see more orders being placed on behalf of others.

It’s a sign that even with the most stringent lockdown our country has faced so far that we still care for others. We still want to show our love and appreciation sending gifts through the post even though we can’t currently exchange presents in person.

If you would like to send a special gift to your parents, grandparents, brother, sister, colleague or customer, I can thoroughly recommend the range of sustainable, environmentally friendly skin, bath and beauty products in the Arbonne collection. You may also find something to treat yourself while the lockdown continues.

To find out more, please give me a call on 07756 772950. I can arrange for your Arbonne order to arrive at a home or work address, or to be posted to a destination of your choice. I am proud to be an independent consultant for Arbonne and can answer any questions you may have about the products, the science, sustainability and environmental difference Arbonne are making in our ever-changing world.

How 2 Litres of Water Helped Me Beat Decision Fatigue and Changed My Life

This blog is focusing on my personal journey which I talk about in presentations and in 4Sights at 4Networking meetings. I’d like to share some of the steps I’ve taken to get to where I am today. I hope my experiences will help you take control of your lifestyle, your time and your income. There are many opportunities available which easily fit around your current commitments.

Seeing plants fourish
Seeing plants flourish

It’s said on average humans make 35,000 decisions every day. Many of these decisions are made at home before we even think about going to work. For example, a typical man makes 3 decisions when choosing which shirt, trousers and socks to wear. In comparison, a woman might make 10 or more decisions including clothing, make-up, jewellery and accessories. That’s before choosing whether to have toast or cereal with tea, coffee or orange juice. So, it’s easy to see how the number of decisions each day adds up to tens of thousands of micro-decisions taking place every few seconds.

Can you imagine what it would feel like if each of these micro-decisions took several minutes to make? This is known as “Decision Fatigue” and it’s a sign our brains have become overloaded. Simple tasks become agonisingly difficult. It’s where molehills become mountains. It can feel like you’re walking through treacle. Over time, decisions can take longer and longer, until the difficulty of making a choice becomes painfully slow, causing stress symptoms, anxiety and depression.

One tip I can offer is to lay out the clothes you want to wear tomorrow as one of your last tasks before bed. In the morning everything will be ready, and you’ll have a few less decisions to make.

Our decisions have a huge impact on our lives. To do, or not to do, that is the question.

In my teenage years, I had an incredibly tough decision to make. At age 18, from a busy, active and energetic life, playing hockey at club level, swimming at county level, canoeing, playing the violin, viola and singing in voice choirs, always on the go, suddenly the backache I’d been ignoring became serious. I was given a terrible decision to make. To undergo high risk surgery or live the rest of my life in a wheelchair.

I chose surgery and after a successful operation on the 14th of October 1997 I spent 5 weeks in hospital relearning how to stand, how to walk and how to climb stairs. With the metal rods in my back, even now, I sometimes feel like a cyborg. My recovery took months of physio plus lots of support from my family and friends. Instead of the super-active lifestyle I was used to, I took up gardening, cycling and joined an orchestra. I made the decision to love the new life I had been given.

Around 15 years later, I aggravated my back slipping down some stairs. I was in agony. I had a beautiful garden that needed my attention, yet I could hardly move from the sofa. Without my care, the precious plants I’d nurtured from seeds would wither and die. They became my motivation.

Again, I had choices. Should I ask my husband to help water the plants? That was an option, but previous experience told me the plants would probably die. Should I give up? In this option, the plants would certainly die. The third option was to find a way around this. To find a viable solution.

I chose the third option. There would be a way around this problem. I just needed to find it.

To aid the recovery from my back injury, the best advice was to walk and to increase my walking every day. Once I was walking freely and unaided, I started carrying some weights around with me to build up my strength and resilience. I didn’t have traditional weights, so I made my own. I used a 2 litre bottle of water.

At first, I only filled the bottle enough so I could water one of my plants. I chose the one plant that meant the most to me. The one I wanted to help survive while I was recovering myself. Having given the plant enough water, I refilled the bottle, again just a small amount, but enough to water the next plant. It took time and patience, but in the second week I could fill the bottle enough to water 2 plants in one go. Then in the third week, I filled the bottle enough to water 3 plants. Then within a month I could fill the whole 2 litre bottle and carry it around. It was enough to make sure I didn’t lose all my garden.

It wasn’t extra money or time at the gym that helped my garden to flourish. It was the power of the 2 litre bottle of water. It gave me the strength to build up my muscles without straining my back. I regained my posture and my confidence.

Seeing the plants thrive in the garden reminded me of the power of water.

As humans, we benefit just as much as plants from drinking water. Keeping ourselves hydrated throughout the day is like putting fuel in a car. It’s like recharging a mobile phone. If you find yourself lagging during the day, if your eyes itch or you are easily distracted, take a few sips of water.

You’ll find when you’re properly hydrated, decisions are easier to make. You’ll have more energy and feel more awake. I can also recommend cutting back on tea and coffee, these drinks will dehydrate you during the day. If you need help remembering to drink more water, set an alarm or ask me to be your accountability buddy.

This is how 2 litres of water helped in my recovery from my back injury and gave me the tools to help my garden survive. Water has helped build my strength and my confidence. It helps maintain my health and has been massively beneficial for me in many ways. I believe every problem has a resolution and I enjoy thinking outside the box, finding solutions for myself and my clients.
